On this page I have collected everything I could find on the net pertaining to the Icom IC-R9000. It is a fantastic receiver, and is always fun to operate. It is filled with features and is a great all around receiver. With its 5 inch amber CRT (or LCD) display it is still unmatched by any wide-band receiver.
